Lothar Zmija’s main point of interest is the business practices of small and medium companies. These companies form the backbone of the German economic sector. They don’t have their own legal departments and are particularly reliant on quality legal advice.
This starts with consultation during the founding of the company – for example concerning which legal company form to use – and continues through the long arc of the company’s life through to the handing on of the company – or in some cases to insolvency advice.
Lothar Zmija’s technical and physical insight is put to particularly good use in the representation of clients active in the manufacturing industry.
Lothar’s main focus is on:
- Civil law, in particular company law
- Advice during the founding of companies and businesses
- Commercial and economic law
- Criminal tax law
- Issues relevant to business activities and the threat of penal consequences
- Representation in inheritance disputes
Lothar speaks fluent English and has a working knowledge of Italian and French.
